You were born for a reason

2015-09-16 06:00

JOHN 1:13 (KJV): “Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

You were born for a purpose. God created each of us for a reason and we are happiest when we are living in harmony with the purpose He has given us. You need to know what it is.

God created humans with the capacity to display the same moral qualities that He possesses. These qualities include love, goodness and justice.

God is the source of life. God said, “Let us make a man in our image, according to our kind.”

Many children are unplanned by their parents, but they are not unplanned by God. God’s purpose takes into account human error and even sin. God never does anything accidentally and He never makes mistakes. He has a reason for everything He creates.

Every plant and animal were planned by God, and every person was designed with purpose in mind.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, sayeth the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (KJV)

Everything that exists has a purpose, you showed up on this planet for a reason.

Maybe you showed up to sing, dance, teach, write, motivate, act or entertain or other things, but you showed up for a reason.

There’s a purpose that you came here to fulfil.

You are gifted and ambitious but there is no progress in your life.

The fact of the matter is that your time will come, you don’t have to blackmail or pull someone down so that you can get to their position and nothing in the world can stop what God has ordained.

Everyone is born a diamond in the rough. We just need to be uncovered.

The truth is: if everyone else can succeed in this world, so can you. No one is better than you. Do what you were created to do and the world is waiting for you to be manifested
